Seriously, you can’t go wrong with Liquid Sky Lacquer. I wish I owned ever single color she puts out.
Today I have Swerve to show you. Its a majorly holo neon/roya blue that just shines as always. This is two easy coats with HK Girl Top coat over the top. Swerve had some issues with self leveling, but man, with the top coat it just glows. I love it!

L’Oreal Colour Riche Too Dimensional is a little too good to be true, but it is true. ITS GORGEOUS!!! I mean, the sparkle, the dimension, the texture. I LOVE IT!! It went on so so easy in two coats and it dried fairly quick. Not as quick as a Zoya Pixie Dust, but not bad. The color is almost like OPI Alcatraz Rocks, but a little lighter and more gold toned. The gold undertones and the silver sequins are a perfect compliment to the purple tone of the polish. Like I said…. I LOVE IT!
I dont know if you’ve heard, but I’ve started dabbling in making my own polishes. This was my first full bottle that I gave away to my bestie Jodi over at 13.1milestodisney. This was a made special color for her birthday. She came over last week and I did her nails in my new studio! We had so much fun. I’m still thinking about starting my own indie line one day… We’ll see.
Oh, and HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY to all the lovahs out there. ::MUAH::
I’m back with another beauty from the E.L.F. Disney Villains Set. I haven’t seen it in my local stores in a while, but E.L.F is saying its still available and you can get it for $27 on amazon if you’re dying for it.
This is Pot of Gold. It comes with a dark gray cream and dark red cream on the Evil Queen side you can see in the picture above. Its a light gold foil that was really a dream to apply. You still see brush strokes, but they’re aren’t as bad as some other foils I’ve tried out. This is two light coats, with my dream HK Girl topcoat. The staying power was actually quite surprising for an elf polish. Day three and I only had light tip wear. Also, sometimes elf polish can have a weird lingering smell even after they’re dry. Not this one! I will def being using it again, especially for gold nail art. I love it.
You guys, the minute I saw this polish I knew I had to have it. Maybe Navy is part of KB Shimmer’s Winter 2013 collection. Its a gorgeous crelly filled to the brim with tiny blue and purple flakies. I took a couple blurry swatches so you could see the flashes and shifts of color in this polish. This is two easy coats with a coat of HK Girl top coat on the shiny top. It goes on smooth and self levels likes a dream. I cannot say enough about this polish. It just screams BEAUTIFUL! I don’t even want to take it off!
It’s still available here. Go get it!
Mind Palace by LynB Designs is a gorgeous purple jelly filled to the brim with white, black, silver, and blue glitters of all different shapes and sizes. It really speaks to the Sherlock Fangirl in me. I LOVE IT.
This polish is right up my alley. Application is so easy, it goes on light and evens out on its own. This is three light coats with HK Girl Topcoat on top. This gorgeous squishy jelly is still available HERE and I think you need to get it NOW! No really, go get it!!
KB Shimmer Toast-ess with the Mostest is really amazing in person. It’s almost too shimmery too look at, if there is such a thing! I received this beauty from 10 Nice Nails and I have admit that I might have squealed and possibly jumped up and down when I opened the package. I could not wait to put this pretty on right away. It’s jammed packed full of pink, champagne, and gold glitters and gorgeous holo glitter disks. It is truly a glitter bomb in all ways. It’s designed as a top coat, but I dabbed and pushed it around to get almost full opacity, I was pretty proud of my myself. This is probably three of four dabbed coats. I think I lost count. It’s still available, so grab it ASAP! You will not be disappointed!
Zoya Rory is one of those colors that I would have never picked out online, but when I saw it in the clearance bin at Ulta, it immediately became a must have. It’s a bubblegum pink with a silver glimmer that makes it almost look like it’s glowing. I know it’s technically a shimmer, but it went one so creamy and smooth, I loved it! This is two light coats with HK Girl Topcoat. Rory is still available on Zoya’s website. I would 100% recommend you add this one to your stash!
I know, I know, I’ve been gone a while, but I have a good reason! We bought a house!!!
It’s exactly what we wanted and we couldn’t be happier. In this new house, I’ve gotten my own Just The Polish studio! I love it.
I have some big plans for this room. I want to get a daybed and a work table. I also have some big plans for art. It’s so exciting!!
Now that I have my workspace set up, I’m back to blogging. I’ve missed it!
My first post back is a beauty by Hit Polish Nail Lacquers. Gilded Rose is a gorgeous bronze gold with multi sized glitters in rose, blue, and other colors. I usually don’t like bar glitters, but these are perfect. This was three easy, light coats, with a heavy layer of HK Girl topcoat to even it out. It would be a great Fall color.
You can find out more about Hit Polish Nail Lacquers HERE. Their shop is currently closed, but hopefully it will be up and running again soon. :)
Well, Christmas Eve. ;)
Did you miss me? I missed y’all! I’m still down to super short nubs. I’m trying Drui Rejuvacoat to help them get back to a decent length. This winter weather is just doing a number on my hands and nails. my cuticles are so sad.
I have some ChinaGlaze Holidaze colors and art to show you from before my big breaks. The first is This Is Tree-mendous. Its a green microglitter that is more light green than the forest green of a Christmas tree, but its gorgeous. China Glaze microglitters always chip fast for me, but it was still fun while it lasted.
Next is Santa Red My List. Its a pretty pink foil. Formula was great and wear time was perfection. This is 2 thin coats.
I have tons of pink foils, so for something fun, I did a stripe mani with Put A Bow On It. I love the name! Put A Bow On It is a gorgeous darker pink microglitter. It kind of blends in with Santa Red My List, but it gives it that sparkly pop a holiday mani needs.
I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! I’m going to try to back to my regularly scheduled posting for now. I hope you have a great Christmas!!!
Due to a horrible break on my pinky and an even worse RIP on my ring finger, Just the Polish is on a break, literally.
I don’t know when I’ll be back guys. This is pretty rough. I have a couple Christmas manis to share before the break, but they will be sporadic at best. Sorry guys!! I’m sure I’ll be back for real after the first of the year. Merry Holiday Season!
